Flying U Rodeo

More Than Just Another Rodeo

The Flying U Rodeo company is a family operated business that has been the heart and soul of Cotton Rosser and his family for over 60 years. Cotton has mastered the art of putting on a successful show and has created generations of rodeo fans that continue coming back for more. A Flying U Rodeo is more than just timed events or roughstock events, it is entertainment at its best. Cotton has made it his legacy to bring top-notch entertainers and specialty acts to his shows.

Justin Rumford

Not Your Average Rodeo Clown

Justin brings his own brand of comedy to the rodeo arena with nods to his favorite comedic actors, such as Kevin James and the legendary Chris Farley. Rumford was raised in the family rodeo stock contracting business that was started by his Grandpa Floyd in Abbyville, Kansas. After his college days of bull fighting, riding saddle broncs and steer wrestling came to an end due to a knee injury, he decided to try his hand at being a rodeo clown. He has since been named the Coors Man in the Can for the second time (2015, 2013) and the PRCA Clown of the Year for the 6th consecutive time in 2017!  He also was named the 2014 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo Barrelman.
